Sampling the various cuisines is one of the most enjoyable pastimes in Asia. Each destination has a rich cultural history, so you could eat your way through the continent and never get bored. Once overlooked by many Westerners, Asia has reclaimed the spotlight as a foodie destination. Our editors have gladly done the research on the best destinations across this vast region.

A major part of Asia’s food culture involves putting together a meal from the street carts and market stalls. Follow the crowds to the most popular places and more often than not you’ll end up with something delicious. Instead of sitting down for a meal, nibbling your way through the various neighborhoods can be a delicious (and often less expensive) alternative. Don’t be afraid to duck into tiny storefront restaurants specializing in one or two local dishes, as it’s a great way to get to know the types of foods that locals enjoy.

As chefs from around the world create their own take on familiar dishes, each country has put together a culinary heritage combining old traditions and new techniques. Japan has emerged as a gastronomical destination, with world-class sushi as well as a new crop of fusion cuisines vying for attention. Singapore and Hong Kong have opened restaurants that are garnering global attention, and Taiwan is also making a name for itself.
